Hey guys, Jana here,


New music releases from now defunct bands or artists that have passed on isn’t really a new thing. We’ve seen enough posthumous releases that nothing should really shock us anymore, right? Every now and them a producer comes up with a mind-blowing vision to have current artists cover titles from an artist’s catalog to give it a face lift while still keeping a little something of the original artist. Covers are a hard tightrope to walk, you know? Either there’s no way in hell you can live up to the original hype or the new version sounds so good you make everyone feel guilty for liking it more than the former.

If those conditions are giving you a migraine, check out the best of both worlds in this video from Queen below. You’re not hearing things, that’s none other than Freddie Mercury’s golden vocal chords screaming out the lyrics of their signature song, We Will Rock You. Yeah, there is a big difference, a quick difference that makes you rethink the lyrics you’re hearing because that’s not the original beat we all know it goes to.

It’s questionable which version will incite a near-riot at a sporting event, but they both are amazing. There’s no questioning this version will effectively melt your face off. This recording is from Queen’s latest releases consisting of 24 songs recorded at the BBC during six sessions in the mid-70’s from 1973 – 1977 titled ‘Queen on Air: The Complete BBC Sessions‘.
